Veronika Pausova’s recent paintings bring together constellations of everyday elements, body parts, and other objects. Pausova positions hyper-realistic flowers, buzzing flies, utensils, oranges, shower heads, and individually rendered water drops within fields of abstraction. Each object is rendered with a precise attention to detail contrasting with the artist’s experimental treatment of surfaces, processes that are sometimes referential but often enigmatic… The independent body parts in Pausova’s paintings – eyes, hands, noses, and knees – aren’t instructional, they seem at once linked to us yet disembodied and unencumbered by the physical rules of the world.
